Last year, the British actor Robert Pattinson graced the covers of three major fashion magazines—Vogue, British Vogue, and Harper’s Bazaar—in a relatively short span of time. While it’s not unheard of for Hollywood A-listers to appear on multiple magazine covers within a year, it is unusual for them to hit the big three in such a short amount of time.
Now, it seems, the 25-year-old is set to continue his fashion coverage bonanza in 2022. Vogue magazine has announced that they will be featuring Pattinson on the cover of their April edition.
The actor recently teased the big reveal during an Instagram Live session. “I have a big announcement to make this week,” he said. “You’re going to love it. It’s such an exciting thing. I can’t believe I’m finally able to share it with you all. But first, I have to do something very special.”
He continued: “This morning, I received a letter from Vogue. And inside that letter, they wrote a special message. And I cried. I’m so happy. It’s such a proud moment.” The actor then revealed that the upcoming Vogue cover is the cover of their April edition, and that he will be wearing a Gucci shirt.
This isn’t the first time that a member of the Twilight and One Direction star-studded cast has been featured on the cover of Vogue. Emma Watson graced the cover of the magazine in 2017. She was later joined by co-stars Kelly Gale, Michael Sheen, and more recently, Elizabeth Taylor. Taylor’s portrait was also featured on the cover of Vogue last year.
It’s safe to say that, five years after the Twilight franchise wrapped, its iconic co-stars continue to grace the pages of Vogue. Taylor’s portrait was also featured on the cover of the magazine last year.
Why Is Vogue Covering Robert Pattinson?
Vogue is a luxury magazine that is typically associated with fashion and beauty coverage. The April edition will be no exception, as it will feature prominent portraits of some of the most prominent fashion and beauty celebrities.
While it’s not unusual for A-listers to appear on the covers of Vogue, British Vogue, and Harper’s Bazaar, it is unusual for them to appear on the cover of three major fashion magazines within such a short span of time. It would appear that Robert Pattinson is relishing his newfound fame and is using it to his advantage. He’ll soon be appearing in the next installment of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film series, and is currently in production on the upcoming season of The Crown.
The upcoming season of The Crown will mark the 300th episode of the historical drama. As well as celebrating this milestone, the series’ executive producer, Peter Morgan, told Vanity Fair that it would be “fitting” for the show to feature the iconic figures of the 20th century. This was likely a subtle hint that, in addition to celebrating the 300th episode, Morgan is also planning to honor some of the most prominent people of the 20th century in some way.
It would appear that Robert Pattinson is well aware of this and is positioning himself for career longevity. The cover of the April edition of Vogue will likely do little to dent his already considerable celebrity. It’s clear that, for now, this is just the beginning for the British actor.
Who Is The Most Prominent Portrait In Vogue’s April 2022 Issue?
Although it’s not yet been published, Vogue’s April edition will prominently feature the following celebrity portraits:
- Emma Watson
- Kelly Gale
- Elizabeth Taylor
- Michael Sheen
- André Agassi
The covers of Vogue and other fashion magazines are typically adorned with beautiful women wearing the latest popular clothing styles. For the April edition of Vogue, that means floral prints and tropical prints. The magazines often put an emphasis on celebrities’ shoe choices as well, so expect to see a lot of yellow, green, and red in the coming months.
What Will The Other Magazines Cover In The 2021 Year-End Awards?
Aside from Vogue, the other two fashion magazines that will be gracing the cover of the upcoming year-end awards are British Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. Harper’s Bazaar will be covering Grace Kelly, while the other two magazines are covering Elizabeth Taylor.
It would appear that, as in the previous year, Vogue is leading the pack. The year 2022 is going to be a big one for the fashion megagroup.
